Thanks Tina,
I know this is what you have been doing, but ---- well, its seems a lot 
of extra work, and makes it hard to use the scanner as your "contact 
printer": also makes me look silly for having paid so much for strip 
and roll film adapters: But the slide loader has worked quite well, and 
for these negs at least, I may have to do as you suggest.

My plan was to take the roll of film, process it, run it through the 
scanner, then cut and store the negs, sort the files, choose a few to 
print in the darkroom and live happily ever after. Maco technology has 
thrown a spanner in the works, should have stuck with APX and its 
limitations ;-

Thanks again, but I can't resist the chance to nag a little and remind 
you that we finish at the end of October ;-)
